Notes     Come ashore, Jolly Tar - from 'A Selection of English, Irish and
  Foreign Airs, adapted for Fife, Violin and German Flute', volumn 1, by
  James Aird, Glasgow, printed 1775. The tune is reprinted in Old
  English Dances by Frank Kidson, the tune as printed is very similar,
  but though the pitch of the notes is the same, the key signature is
  Dminor - one flat, rather than the two in this MS. This version is
  Phrygian mode, transposed down a tone. Or, of course, the key
  signature could be wrong.
